Transcript

  • 1. Class actions in Mexico. The Congress of the Union recently amended the Political Constitution, in order to introduce class actions in the Mexican legal system. On July 29, 2010, the Federal Official Gazette published the amendment to article 17 of the Constitution, which allows the existence of this kind of procedures. Mexican laws were inadequate as to the mechanism for the defense and protection of consumers. This project has been under study for several years. The amendment is already in force, but a term of one year was granted in order to make all necessary adjustments to ordinary laws. Within such term, the Congress of the Union will issue the laws that will regulate class actions. These laws will determine the application matters, judicial procedures and mechanisms to remedy damages. Federal judges will learn in an exclusive manner of these procedures and mechanisms.
